• What is SHAC?

    A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is made up of school personnel, community members and parents. SHAC assists the district in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, SHAC plays an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning. They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime.
